GET set to remember the ‘good old days’ in a special exhibit of Renfrewshire from decades gone by on Saturday in Paisley.

The overall process overseen by Paisley Museum involved scanning 8mm films made by the club and then interviewing them.

Edited with great skill by Cameron, the Paisley Camcorder Club has created an invaluable record of local life during the 1950’s and 1960’s.

These films are currently being toured around the area at care homes, community groups and local interest groups as well as Town Halls and Paisley Art Centre.

The Queen's coronation is just one of the many events that will be shown 

These films may have been left up in the attic or at the back of a wardrobe but due to the dedication of members of the Paisley Camcorder Club they have been given a new lease of life.

The films contain many events and occasions of local significance such as Renfrew during the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth 2nd or Paisley during its 1970’s modernisation.

But there are also fascinating portraits of local life such as tenants association trips to Ayr and Blackpool.
